Teenage Bed

Ok so the bed's not a teenager, but my son almost is.  I cannot believe he's going to be 13 this October.  Well anyway on to the bed project.  So I have been praying for a new bed for my son.  Yes you read that right praying.  And guess what GOD answered my prayers.  I got a bed and the thrift store for half price at a whopping $50.  Woo hoo for answered prayers.  My in'laws ended up paying for it and new mattresses, paint, sheets. (you get the idea, right?)  Ok so here is the bed when I got it home and into his room:

 and some more pics of the rest of the room.  I am planning on surprising him with a "new" room this summer while he's at camp.  Hee hee I cannot wait!
okay so now to the newly painted bed

Whatcha think?  Not bad huh!  I am soooo very pleased with it!  I used "Lagoon"  by Valspar from Lowes.  I got their paint and primer in one because the original color was a blueberry purplish color, YUCK.  Anyhoo I love it (and so does my son, score one for the mom  ;>!!!

My crazy OCD Life!

Okay peeps, I have been obsessively desiring change in my house.  We have lived here for 10 years and I have changes things up a bit over the years.  Lots of painting yada yada yada.  But as of late, SCARY!  I am going to post pics this week but to tonight I am up to my elbows in Navy Blue paint.  I will get pics up asap!  Keep checking back.  I think this is going to be the year of the House, lol!
